26 things I did before turning 26

Whats good wreckless people?!

If you didn’t know, now you know that it’s my 26th birthday tomorrow(May 16th) and I’m half way excited, half way “its whatever” about the moment. After turning 25 and facing the peak of my quarter life crisis, I look forward to 26 as another year of resentment and depression. lol I’m kidding. Honestly I am very appreciative of another year and to prove it, I’ve come up with a list of things I’m glad I did and was able to do before turning 26.

If you live in New York, I wish that you would come out and celebrate with me at my comedy shows, Wreckless Wednesdays and Uptown Thursday Nights. If not drop me well wishes on all social networks possible and enjoy your life sucker.

Anyway check out my list which is in no particular order…
